Donald Trump Maligned US Immigration Laws During Speech on MS-13 Gang
Type: Anti ImmigrantFeb 06 2018 Severity: Targeted: Undocumented Immigrants
Donald Trump took aim at US immigration laws by calling them stupid during an event highlighting a gang that is predominately made up of individuals from Central and South American countries. Trump often uses the gang in explaining his tough immigration opinions, but the fact of the matter is that the gang makes up a statistically insignificant fraction of those who are in the country without proper documentation.
Quote | The President used the gang as yet another excuse to build a border wall.
"Not another country in the world has the stupidity of laws that we do when it comes to immigration. And if we don't get them changed, this isn't politics, this isn't Republican and Democrat, this is common sense. So, it has to be taken care of."
